Christmas has started.... 

Christmas has started at our little house. 
The Elf on the Shelf was here this morning. Ada is so happy and 
excited for her little friend to report back to Santa every night when we are asleep. 
What list do we belong to ?? :o) 

Have a wonderful Sunday 
We are leaving soon. 
We are going to a Christmas play (the Mooseltoe) with Anne and the kids. 

Later this afternoon our Florida visitors are coming by to hang out 
before it is time to say goodbye. 

This weekend went by way too fast and I wish I could add a few more days...

What a fantastic Thanksgiving weekend we have had. 
So far. It is not over yet. 
Today and tomorrow are also full of family fun :o) 

Last night our little town was turned into "Winter Wonderland"
 and we all went down to see Santa Claus come by to light our city 
hall Christmas tree. 
It was cold. So cold. Our Florida visitors are not use to the cold, 
but luckily the town had put up fire pits where people could 
get warmed up. Including us. I had to snap a picture of all the kids 
standing around the fire pit.

Wednesday Thanksgiving Table Setting Inspiration 

Here we go... 

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and we are ready to celebrate 

.... And they say we are getting a snow storm later today into the night! 
I am not ready for that. Yet ! 

Have a wonderful Wednesday and I will see you tomorrow !

Yes, today rocks ! 

We are counting the hours now. Actually counting the minutes, 
because my Danish b.f.f. Lone and her family from 
Florida are coming to visit us. 
To celebrate Thanksgiving with us. 
Can't wait to see them. For us to catch up. 
For the kids to play and have fun. 
We always have such a good time when we get 
together, either by us in New Jersey or when we go visit them in Florida !! 
And this is going to be another great time, for sure ! 

Have a wonderful Tuesday ! 

Vi ses !

Happy Saturday 

Hi Bloggers

Happy Saturday. 

We have a busy day ahead of us. But a good way.  
In the afternoon we are going to see the Christmas fairy tale ballet "The Nutcracker" at 
our local theater and tonight we have a family baby shower. 

I am looking forward to both. 

To semi-start Christmas this afternoon and to see family and friends tonight. 

And now time to do a few things at our little house !! 

.......Oh and P.S.: I painted the shelf for the bathroom and Mr. J said 
he will hang it tomorrow !

New Shelf 

Yay, another D.I.Y. project for me.... 

I love when I find something I can fix, or just paint. 
Like this shelf.  
I want to hang it in our bathroom. For our perfumes and stuff. 
But first I need to paint it. 
Spray paint it white, or some sort of whitish colour.
And, of course, I will show you the result when it is done and up on the wall :o) 

Happy Thursday my lovely readers! 

Have a wonderful day !

We have a rainy day. 
But it is a special day for us. 
Tonight we have to go to Ada's school. 
She is getting the Principal's Award. 
We are so proud. We don't know why she is receiving it. 
We will not know until tonight when were are there for the ceremony. 
My heart is burning of pride. 

Have a nice Monday and as always thank you for stopping by !

Almost Done

Frames are up, but only with a few pictures.
I still need to go and get the rest developed.
(sorry about the reflections in the frames :o)...)   

At our little house it is almost time for Ada's bath and to enjoy some 
television before it is time to say good night... 
.... and to get ready for a new week.  

Happy Sunday Night !

wish you all a nice Saturday !

..... and now back to my cleaning :o)

We welcome Adele at our little house 

She arrived. She is here. 
Adele from Love Warriors of Sweden. 
I decided to frame her, even tough she is printed on Tyvek.  
I am not sure she is going to stay in this spot. 
I might move her one of these days. 
But one thing is for sure and that is that I loooove it. 

I enjoyed my day off yesterday. 
I went to IKEA. I painted. 
But, I am not happy with the colour I picked. It is too light. 
I wanted it darker. On the paper sample it looked darker. 
I am going to leave it for now. Hang my photo gallery.
But I am going to change the colour. Soon. Very soon. 

Have a fantastic Wednesday ! 

Time for my coffee and get my day started !

Vi ses !

Project Veterans Day 

I am painting this wall today and turning it into a photo gallery wall.  
I have picked a darker grey. 
I think it will look very nice with a gallery of white frames. 

But before I start my little painting project I am taking a trip to IKEA. 
To get the white frames and to stock up on candles etc. 
And to see their Christmas decorations. 
I am sure they have some nice Scandinavian Christmas stuff...

Have a great Tuesday !

Sunday and the New Rug 

My new rug in the living room. 
I love it. We all love it. 
It is nice and soft and the colors fit right into our living room.

Lovely Sunday morning and my Ada and I are up already while
the rest of the house is sleeping. 

We had a busy yesterday (Saturday) with a trip to the salon in the morning, 
so the girls could get their hair straightened (and they look so pretty) and a birthday 
party in the afternoon.

I think we are taking an easy and relaxing day today!   
We don't have anything on the family agenda. So far.

Gotta go.... 
Ada is calling me. She wants me to join her on the sofa under the blanket 
and watch a movie with her. Hey, who can say no to that?? 
Nothing better than spending time with your kids....

See you !

A sneak peak 

A sneak peak of my new rug for the living room. It came yesterday!
Got it at Target with a 15% off + free shipping with my REDcard. 
It looks a little "yellowish" on this picture (took the picture last night when it was dark), but 
it is actually beige with black patterns. 
Fits right into the living room :o) 

As always thank you for stopping by my blog. 

Have a great Tuesday !

Big Change 

The leaves are changing and so is the weather. 

It has gotten so cold these last few days. 
We went into NYC last night for a family birthday party and I had the girls 
wear their winter coats. It was so rainy, cold and windy. 
Fall is here for sure... 

Have a great Sunday
We are having a lazy Sunday at our little house....
